Genotype-Phenotype Correlations in Breast Cancer.

Genotype-Phenotype Correlations in Breast Cancer. Surg Pathol Clin. 2018 Mar;11(1):199-211 Authors: Marotti JD, Schnitt SJ Abstract Only a few breast cancer histologic subtypes harbor distinct genetic alterations that are associated with a specific morphology (genotype-phenotype correlation). Secretory carcinomas and adenoid cystic carcinomas are each characterized by recurrent translocations, and invasive lobular carcinomas frequently have CDH1 mutations. Solid papillary carcinoma with reverse polarity is a rare breast cancer subtype with a distinctive morphology and recently identified IDH2 mutations. We review the clinical and pathologic features and underlying genetic alterations of those breast cancer subtypes with established genotype-phenotype correlations and discuss the phenotypes associated with germline mutations in genes associated with hereditary breast cancer.

We report a case of massive upper-limb edema necessitating disarticulation, in a cancer survivor who tended to ignore instructions regarding preventive exercises since 2002 after completion of her treatment for breast cancer. However, she was in a family situation where she was constrained to physically involve in daily chores. Consequently, she presented 14 years later with a lymphedematous arm which weighed over 31 kg, necessitating disarticulation. We highlight the role of preventive exercises in postmastectomy patients and also the efficacy of continuous nerve block techniques in preventing the development of phantom l...

Abstract Ductal carcinoma in situ has been stable in incidence for a decade and has an excellent prognosis. Breast conservation therapy is safe and effective for most patients. Adjuvant whole breast radiation therapy is recommended to reduce the risk of local recurrence. Accelerated partial breast irradiation is a promising alternative to decrease toxicity and improve cosmetic results. Adjuvant hormonal therapy can reduce local recurrence, but should be used cautiously. Future directions in management include developing predictive tools for guidance for use of adjuvant therapy and selecting low-risk patients ...

The previous works showed that AGR2 high express in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) biopsy tissues. However, whether AGR2 serves as a diagnostic and prognostic marker for NPC remains unclear.Methods42 healthy volunteers, 34 breast cancer patients and 124 NPC patients were enrolled ...

Cancer chemo-prevention represents a promising strategy to control the occurrence of cancer. While cancer chemo-preventive drugs have been developed to prevent the growth of tumor cells in cancer patients, many of these drugs have shown to be toxic, such as breast cancer drugs amoxifen or raloxifene, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory colon cancer drugs. Therefore, naturally occurring compounds may offer promising alternative means for cancer chemo-prevention. The ability of natural products to suppress carcinogenesis has attracted the widespread attention as a means of cancer prevention and treatment [1-7].

ConclusionsTIS21/BTG2 significantly lost in the infiltrating ductal carcinoma, but it can inhibit cancer growth via the TIS21/BTG2–tsc1/2 –mTORc1–p70S6K axis and downregulate cancer progression via the TIS21/BTG2–mTORc2–AKT1–NFAT1–PHLPP2 pathway.

A 66-year old woman had a left breast mass. Biopsy showed invasive ductal carcinoma. A PET/CT scan demonstrated hypermetabolism in the left breast and atypical heterogeneously increased uptake throughout the skeleton as well as a minimally FDG-avid right adrenal myelolipoma. PET/CT 4 months later after 6 cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy demonstrated increased size and FDG avidity of this adrenal mass concerning for metastasis and uniformly increased skeletal FDG avidity. Biopsy demonstrated adrenal myelolipoma. The growth and increased FDG avidity of the adrenal myelolipoma were due to the action of colony-stimulating fa...
